3:35pm
3:36pm
3:37pm
the one breaking news. the dow jones is on track to close the week in the right. investors eating up shares of one-stop today. let's go to nicole on the floor of the new york talk exchange. >> we are talking about starbucks and whole foods market. moving together, they came out
3:38pm
with their new advertisement be history, raises forecast for starbucks is looking good so far. not only did they beat the street street and raised the outlook, but also asked about the chief financial officers noting how important the holiday quarter is for the company. over the course of the order, he said no, there will not be a meaningful impact to us. this is the company, liz, unlike delta airlines and verizon wireless, they are saying that hurricane sandy is not going to hurt their numbers. very good news is they raise their forecasts. they have a lot of promotional measures as well to bring in customers. liz: far be it for me to
3:39pm
question him. both have had naugatuck pillories anytime a normally those glass shelves that they have a normally full. >> yes, this is true. liz: i'm not sure why he i'm not sure why you think this won't hurt them in some way shape or form. >> mind wouldn't even open comes to your ahead of me. liz: knuckle, thank you very much. there are worse problems come we know that. but we are giving you a anecdotal anecdotal evidence of each stock we talk about. but there is hard facts that we are talking about. how many people will be saying that i have to get a generator next time. but here is an issue that many of us have seen developed. what good are gasoline powered generators if you run out of gasoline? 3.6 million homes along the eastern seaboard. many gasoline stations are still without power following the well of flow of hurricane sandy. the demand is huge. genarac is a leading manufacturer of generators that
3:40pm
has ramped up production of shipping to meet the needs of people affected. aaron jagdfeld is the ceo. a couple of issues i have to get to first, but first off, are you able to ship a bunch of generators now or is the gasoline issue or trucks getting these new generators into our area? >> is getting logistics taken care of in terms of fuel for trucks and getting the trucks are great in a lot of cases, getting into the metro area is very difficult. some of the areas hardest hit -- we were having a hard time getting things moving to those areas. we have shipped a lot of products before the event actually had, which was great. people a bill to get it in place so that people could hopefully trying to what they could do to protect themselves. but after ahead, it has been difficult. liz: do you specialize in gasoline powered generators, liquid natural gas? >> we specialize in all kinds. obviously during a storm, people run out and they try to buy one
3:41pm
of the large big-box retailers for the problem is the first of all there is a scarcity issue that they run into. but if they're lucky enough to find one, we typically see same type of pattern repeated in major wholesale damage like that. the gas stations -- unfortunately, a lot of active themselves. finding gasoline, if you didn't have the foresight to go ahead and fill up a bunch of gas cans ahead of the event and a lot of people don't have the capability of doing that, you're kind of stuck with your portable generator in terms of not having fuel. we have seen a huge shift over the last five to seven years where people are going with backup power, which run off a lp because they don't have that fuel issue. liz: okay, we thought we were all prepared. now it is panic. have a natural gas filling work
3:42pm
for one of these generators? >> so it comes right outside her home. they are fully automatic review even have to be home if the power goes out. these generators -- we call them home standby generators. liz: how much do they run? >> they can be $2000 orchitis for $5000. liz: what is the lowest priced? >> the lowest price starts at $1800. liz: empowers your refrigerator, your television? >> just some of the basics, your refrigerator and some pump and tv. but the bigger generators will cover your whole home. liz: what kind of calls are getting right now. what about business customers and not just residential? of a commercial building? >> the manufacture generators
3:43pm
for those as well. we obviously have a very broad product out there. also we get today are people asking about -- that they have questions about maintaining their generators, it has been running for about seven days. is there anything we should be doing with that product. the questions quickly turn. many of the calls we're getting today is how can i find one. liz: welcome your stock is doing great. thirty-three cents below your 52 week high. i know that that is not first and foremost, but at times like this to you guys are coming through. it's great to talk to you, aaron jagdfeld. we appreciate you. >> and you so much. liz: aaron jagdfeld of genarac. he is trying to get a lot of generators, but the trucks that carry them, they don't want to run out of gas as well. "closing bell" ringing in a few
3:44pm
short minutes. a few short days until the election. a few days until americans head to the polls. but with fiscal uncertainty looming, for whoever wins, should investors be looking outside the u.s. glove up their it has not these people's concerns about their money and savings. our next guest talks about why this may be outside of our borders. don't go away.
3:45pm
3:46pm
3:47pm
3:48pm
liz: take a look on the screen right now. we have priceline, to travel
3:49pm
stocks, priceline.com, strong quarterly earnings. burchard advisors part, they lead the way. 20% of the day and we have other travel sites getting swept up in all of us. a very big boost from all of this. sending green arrows all across the board for many of these, including kayak and orbitz. getting to big news. this has become a staging area for emergency vehicles. coming to us courtesy of wnyw. everyone is waiting with the emergency vehicles, ambulances, waiting. the question is, what do they waited -- what are they waiting
3:50pm
for? due to gridlock issues and other issues, it is not looking good. some people say that it is good to keep business up and it is good to keep going, but sometimes it's not easy during the state street investor sentiments may be a little too lax. we have a guest joining us on a fox business exclusive. great investment options leading up to the election. if they are lax, it is what it is, is in a? >> the question comes down to what are some of the possibilities that can come out of this election. what impact will that have on the economy. when you speak a lot of investors, most of them are fairly confident.
3:51pm
liz: you are never the kind of guy that doesn't have the people making news in portfolios. what should people be doing beforehand if anything? >> you know, often beforehand, i don't think people should do anything. the reality for the next few days, the election outcome is very uncertain. it is 5050. not only the race to the white house, but also the senate. the question is what comes after the election. if you get a very divisive outcome, the risks of this -- ironically, one way they might want to consider doing that is lowering allocations to stocks and bonds in the u.s. and increasing international exposure. liz: international exposure. that's something people can do without waiting.
3:52pm
you believe that no matter who becomes president, people's money can really grow? >> yes. one of the things people should keep in mind is that they have done very well the last few years. the u.s. has outperformed for good reason. we are shifting to an environment where the u.s. may be a bigger source of rest. in addition, they are not that cheap against other markets. we like northern europe, we'd like asia, we buy commercial markets. liz: we have brazil on a couple of these funds. why brazil? >> brazil is an interesting play. the stocks are very cheap. they trade for about less than 10 times earnings, and one of the things we like about it is the real evidence of structural reform. we see monetary policy model tries on the types of structural reform that leads to faster growth. also, very good energy, and as a is a sector that we like over
3:53pm
the long-term. liz: let me just say you also like china funds. these are energy companies, banks, etc., china, seeing a little bit of a slowdown? >> i think we are. china has been a disappointment this year. no one believes it's going back to 10% growth. we do think the worst news is behind it and it will rebound in 2013. another area is chinese small caps. companies that will benefit the most consumption continues to rise in china. liz: chinese small caps. an unbelievable story that has been up-and-down. it is good to see you. thank you very much. >> and you, turn to. liz: we will see what happens a couple of days before the election. the closing bell ringing and seven minutes. take a look at the big board. the dow jones industrial taking a pretty big hit today. this last hour, seven minutes
3:54pm
ago, down 133 points for the year. the dow jones is up 7%. the nasdaq is up 14% year-to-date. the s&p is up 12%. make that 13% if you're looking at year-over-year jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring.

he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees.
3:57pm
so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td ameritrade. liz: walmart down 3%. for the winner, bank of america. nice move to the upside. a lot is happening in this next hour. after the bell, we do have a bunch of news we need to get to you right now.
3:58pm
david asman getting ready for that. david: we are looking at interesting moves. starbucks. talk about a gainer. liz: let's go to nicole petallides. better than expected jobs report. why weren't traitors impressed with the numbers? nicole: when you hear all the experts talk about the facts of rate of growth we are seeing, it will take nine or ten years to get back to normal levels for an appointment. that certainly does not make you feel like you should be fine this market on the contrary. short-term selling going on right now. david: look at what happened to apple. the last time i looked it was down $21. over 3% loss in just one day. 3.5% off now.
3:59pm
nicole: it is very interesting. it looked as if it was going higher. i solved the lines for the ipad many. today, it is selling into the close. liz: energy one of the worst performing sectors today. we have natural gas significantly lower. what are the names behind all of that? nicole: i would certainly put chevron and chesapeake in there. they both came out with numbers and earnings. we are not seeing production from chevron. they did not meet the streets. most of the energy names came under pressure. david: we are focusing on oil. let's focus a little bit on natural gas. we have someone coming up, by the way, betting on natural gas. clean energy is the name of the
